Women Dominate Grammy Nominations

Donald Glover now has a bleached beard and also a digitally augmented doppelganger

CBS is the official broadcaster of the Grammys and the network will show the entire award show on television.

LIVE from the GRAMMYs red carpet in Los Angeles, host Tracy Moore chats with the night's biggest artists and nominees while music correspondent Devo Brown and fashion correspondent Lauren Howe break down the night's hottest tracks and looks.

The lead up to this year's Grammys hasn't been completely smooth though.

Ariana Grande, with two nominations in the pop field, pulled out of the show late last week after a dispute with producers over which songs she would perform. Grande was quick to refute this account on Twitter, her chosen medium for handling such matters.

"There's great respect that is deserved to women and you will see that live embodied on Sunday". "I hope the show is exactly what you want it to be and more", she continued.

Carlile told the AP she stands "behind Ariana Grande's decision to stand up for herself and her art".


The Grammy Premiere Ceremony will begin at 12:30 p.m. PT, with host Shaggy leading the festivities, and presenters like Questlove handing out the first Grammy Awards. "As much as I'm nominated, I would not be anything without the village of women who are walking into their truth", she said. "I'm especially excited for all the incredible women nominated this year!" Ehrlich told The New York Times in an article also published on Thursday that the rappers had also declined his invitations to perform at the show. "We feel this Grammys is going to be different and bigger and better than any other". Alicia Keys is hosting this year's event - and she's the first woman to do so in over a decade. Despite receiving eight nominations that year - the most of anyone - he went home empty-handed. A representative for the Grammys didn't return an email seeking clarification about the tribute.

Actor/rapper Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino is among those to have apparently turned down the opportunity to perform at this year's Grammy Awards.

As for other ways to watch the Grammys, you can also tune into American network CBS.

Five women are nominated for Album of the Year, where Brandi Carlile, Cardi B, Kacey Musgraves, Janelle Monae and H.E.R. will compete with Post Malone, Drake and Kendrick Lamar's "Black Panther" soundtrack.

Taylor Swift, who has just one nod for her best-selling 2017 album "Reputation", is filming in London. He later acknowledged that it was a "poor choice of words", and it forced the academy to launch a new task force focused on inclusion and diversity. Portnow announced later in the year that he would not seek to extend his contract, which ends this year. H.E.R.is also one of six women nominated for best new artist (out of eight total), along with Chloe x Halle, Dua Lipa, Margo Price, Bebe Rexha and Jorja Smith. But with Lady Gaga, Shawn Mendes, Cardi B, and Travis Scott among the evening's performers, there won't be a shortage of star power. Red carpet arrivals and interviews will be broadcast live starting at 2 p.m. PT.
